Truckin, Truck Driver, Nomad, no matter what you call'em they are what keep America movin. If it weren't for men & women of the road everything and I mean everything would shut down. I have heard people say that the world would be a better place without these rigs on the road. Shoot, you take them off the road and the same people would be screamin because there wouldn't be any way to get their cappuccino or enviromentally safe toilet paper delievered to them. These guys are the most unappreciated workers in America. People think that it's an easy job, because hey "all they have to do is drive" When I hear this I know without a shadow of a doubt that this person has never driven
over the road. Back when I was in my early 20's I decided that I wanted to drive OTR. I got my CDL and arranged to be grandfathered in by a truckin company out of Fla. After my first trip (5 days long) I knew that this was not the life for me. It takes a special kind of person to do long haul. It's probably one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Being away from your friends and family, sleeping alone, and endless miles of highway can take it's toll on a person both mentally and emotionally. So this is our salute to the American Truck Driver. We would really like to hear from you guys out there on the road. Send us some pictures of you and your rigs. Every chance we get we love to stop into a truck stop and just chat with you guys. Some of the best Rednek stories I have ever heard came from truck drivers. So if you see us out be sure to give us a yell. We will always take time out of our schedule for the Hardest Workers In America.
